. * all owe (applause) [cheering and applauding] >> thank you so much. there is a note from willie brown that says, tom, be short. [laughter] >> i don't know, scott. every time i see you, i want to take off my clothes. i don't know what that is. [laughter] >> you can read into that whatever you wanted to. i think you should see from the remarks that preceded me that one strong attribute of both these extraordinary men was a sense of humor and a sense of irony. i've often thought about the differences in their background and how they came together in that context that juxtaposition in history. you know, san francisco, as the former mayor and speaker mentioned, was very eclectic, electric at the time, women's movement, the lgbt movement, the civil rights movement, and, you know, things were happening, boys and girls. harvey's election i think made people take notice. i think that george's, george's proclivities were always in and around social justice. i know that he was raised catholic. so was i. 16 years of catholic school has made me the man i am today. [laughter] >> and harvey influen
in the administration of then-mayor willy brown. and general myat and i were talking about putting together a table top exercise and in came from some exercises from the marine corps and barry newman was a very energetic officer in the marine corps. he has gone over to afghanistan, i went over and saw him there, he was attached to the kabul police chief. i think he's going to have some interesting perspectives about working in the police department in a war zone. lieutenant commander patricia serrano, her assignments have been varied includes working as a immediate vaek core man, a legal clerk and a tqm instructor. she completed a 7-month deployment. captain mike napolitano is serving with the navy's expedition training group. while deployed in 2004, he spearheaded maritime patrol relief efforts toing the 2004 indian ocean tsunami, as well as numerous theater cooperation efforts throughout the pacific and in 2009 captain napolitano reported as commanding officer of the expeditionary training group. this is a fabulous panel and i know you're going to appreciate what they have to say. rear admira
to chew on over thanksgiving. and hopefully you won't choke on it. september 11th, 2011 mayor willie brown, given advance warning of the nation's worst terrorist attack since pearl harbor. if only he had have told betty anne ong not to travel on september 11th, then we wouldn't have had to have -- >> i just have to remind you, that was a tragic event. i think you just have to show a little respect for that situation here in this room. >> absolutely. >> yet it was a very tragic event, september 11th. if you were in san francisco at that time, you were getting evicted from your stable, which was being managed by recreation and parks department and the commission here. you were told that you were going to get your facilities modernized. your stalls enlarged. that was ten years ago. you are sitting there asking me to have respect for september 11th? what if you owned a horses in san francisco september 11th, 2001. your tone would be a bit different, mr. buell. you seem to have total contempt for this city, the people that live in it. especially people that have recreational activities in it. y
point and conleeza rice, and lor rein powell, mayor willy brown, mary murphy, chris kelly, ron conway and many others. it's really an all star crew from people in the bay area. the economic benefits are incredible. thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of economic activity. in san francisco we have been tested and with the giants and the america's cup and fleet week and all of the events we have hosted. it's an incredible time to be a san franciscan. it's a world class event and one of the biggest in the world and we are a world class city deserving of hosting it. i want to thank the chair for getting the funds for the youth programs and the more we do the better off we are as a community here in san francisco. i think his goals are ambitious but i am confident in them making it a reality in the city and i hope you join me and i submit. >> thank you supervisor farrell. supervisor kim. >> thank you. as long as we're on the topic of sports we am introducing this on the traffic impacts and on pier 32 for the warriors and we are excited they're making san francisco making the
, retired politiciansk= io such as doug bosco and willie brown. it's because of3tj their power that my daughter went from missing9i%( 7zÑ to dead. this has to do with domestic violence. if sonoms of energy in her father raping me teen prostitution, and teen drugs not being locked up she would be alive. i am sick when i look and compare and contrast what happened with domestic dispute in your county and in mine, knowing that this same power and influence that prevented justice in my case created another set of injustice in the opposite direction in your case. i know that you have somewhat resolved that problem, but not fully. i came here specifically to speak to you, and also to your sheriff. one of the things-zp8d that could come out of this as a positive with all this dispute about legitimate rape is i begged for the investigators to give me a polygraph test. they said they couldn't. so i'd like your help with getting a law passed on the federal and state level so that witnesses and those accused of sexual assault do
people who wanted to do something because he had the backing, diane feinstein has been there, willy brown has been there, some -- i think sammy davis junior went there once. so it's not famous people haven't visited it and it's not that sam jordan was very well known. i think in this case it's what has been happening and how his spirit has been kept alive by serving the poor. that's what we need, that's what we need in the bayview. we need people who are compassionate, people who do not forget their roots. people say they represent, if you represent and you know your people, especially the people who came from the south, i'm talking to the people at home, then your representatives should be those that represent the poor, much like phillip burton did, much like other good representatives did that you respect in city hall. so if sam jordan was here i think he would have said that his work was something for the community, that working for the community, that working for uplifting somebody, that would bring joy to his heart. i think that's what he would have said and i am glad ther
